Eat during this magic time- 3pm-4pm
Having a snack during this time of the afternoon is important to balance blood sugar and keep your metabolism going. But it’s not just when, but what you eat during this magic hour. Protein helps to bring down your blood sugar levels and when this is low, so is your insulin, which is the hormone that can make us gain weight around the middle.
So instead of some crackers for your afternoon snack, try a protein bar, low fat cheese or a handful of almonds.
One of the best workouts to reduce stomach fat? Boxing!

Cut down on salt
Resist the urge to reach for the salt shaker or packet of chips at your next meal, it could be bad news for your waist line! Excess salt in our diets cause water to move from our bloodstream into our skin, causing a bloated, puffy look.

Slow it down at meal times!
It’s not just about what you eat, but how you’re eating. Not chewing your food properly is a number one cause of stomach bloating and gas. Depending on what you’re eating, make sure you chew each mouthful around 10-20 times. It should be the consistency of applesauce before you swallow!
